In this interactive game from NCTM's Calculation Nation, players try to create fractions that are either larger or smaller than their opponents' fractions. Each player begins with twelve cards and can only use them once in each round of play. Players can play against another player or against the computer. A fraction bar chart is available to help students compare fractions.

This interactive game provides an opportunity for students to think about how fractions are related to a unit whole, compare fractional parts of a whole, and find equivalent fractions. Players move markers a total distance that is less than or equal to the random target fraction, along their choice of seven parallel number line tracks, which are divided into different fractional parts. The goal is to move each of the seven markers to the right side of the game board using as few fraction target cards as possible. Instructions and exploration questions are included.

In this online game students must match the fraction to a model of the fraction (rectangular, triangular, or circular). For each fraction several representations match and each one must be chosen before a new fraction appears. Each round of the game is timed for 1-minute and score is tracked to see how many fraction matches can be made in that time frame.

This interactive activity allows users the ability to explore different representations for fractions and how they are equivalent to mixed numbers, decimals, and percentages. Users adjust the numerator (up to 100) and the denominator (1 to 25) in order to see a visual representation of the fraction. The visual representation can be seen as a length, area, region, or set model. Users also have the ability to keep track of the equivalent forms of fractions in a table. Instructions and exploration questions are given.
